* The TaylorSwift song 'Tim Mcgraw': On one hand the narrator and her boyfriend spent an idyllic summer together. On the other hand, the boyfriend is now gone forever and the narrator only has a memory left.
* In the SayAnything song "Death for my Birthday" the narrator spends the entirety of his (wonderful) life praying for death and being miserable. When he finally gets what he wants, he has a moment of reflection before he dies and wishes he had more time to enjoy all of the things he had.

* {{Vocaloid}} producer {{mothy}}'s "Kept Waiting for a Response" might not be canon to the ''[[Franchise/EvilliousChronicles Story of Evil]]'', but as [[WhatCouldHaveBeen one of the endings mothy originally had in mind]] and closely tied to what he eventually went with it certainly qualifies. [[GodSaveUsFromTheQueen Riliane]] fully regrets her actions, is redeemed and dies a happy death among the children she raised in an orphanage, but her twin Allen and many other people died because of her and in the end, she can't really get her one last wish- she wishes to have a response to a letter she sent years ago... [[spoiler: but the letter was to the already dead Allen and she knows that, even as a boy gives her a fake reply and she smiles and thanks him.]]

* The [[GoldFever Gold Rush]] era folk-song "Sweet Betsy From Pike" tells the story of the titular woman and her husband Ike traveling to California. They survive numerous hardships, almost starve, fend off hostile Indians and successfully arrive.. only in the last verse to get a divorce.

* ''Music/TheRiseAndFallOfZiggyStardustAndTheSpidersFromMars''. Sure, the overall message of the album has been one of the damage caused by SexDrugsAndRockNRoll and Ziggy's ego eventually gets him killed, but the final album cut "Rock and Roll Suicide" is, despite its name, an upper whose overall message is YouAreNotAlone and not to give up hope in the face of obsolescence.

* Martina [=McBride's=] Concrete Angel definitely has a bittersweet ending (especially if you watch the music video). The poor abused girl ends up dying, but she flies up to a place where she's loved. The ending of the music video shows her little ghost self playing with a group of other children.
